Everyone and I mean everyone goes through tough times, self-doubt, insecurity. These feelings can be triggered by many different reasons but the one constant is that everyone will go through them at some time in their life. It may feel overwhelming, there may feel like there is no way out. It is in these moments, at the bottom that we find ourselves and our true power.
Robin Williams, the late comedian, once famously said "A broken heart, hungry stomach, an empty wallet can team you some of the best lessons in life." It is to this point the saying, "It is darkest before the dawn" originates. I truly believe in this mindset, as I, like many of you reading this have had my own challenges, my own setbacks, and failures.
It is at these moments where we either commit to a pathway forward and up, loving ourselves first to choose a better way of being and not repeating the behaviors that landed us here or we once again stumble and have further to fall. There are really only two choices at the point, Fear or Love. Always choose love and never let fear turn you from your playful heart.
As Will Smith once said, "The best things in life are on the other side of fear. Like jumping out of an airplane, seeing the door open, fear may overtake you. But, just on the other side of that fear, you experience such blissful joy that you wonder why you have fear at all."
Remember to always fail big and the only thing you fall back on is your faith!
